For those who don’t already have Vladimir for M4, you can pick him up very inexpensively as part of the Haunt Starter Bundle. Right now this bundle is $4.00, which is 96% off the regular price. (Vladimir is $4.00 too, but I generally go for bundles whenever practical.) The only thing I don’t have from the Haunt set is the M4 Skeleton, but since I have the M3/V3 versions, I’ve not been in any hurry to buy the Gen4 ones.
So yeah, I think Vladimir’s a rather nifty character:
Looking at the Vladimir promos again, I couldn’t help thinking he was something of a forerunner to all those later DAZ characters like Gianni 6, Lee 6, Lilith 6, etc. There’s even extra surface detailing, via displacement maps.
Which reminds me — I recently picked up the M6/V6 HD sets and noticed the V6 maps are normal maps in tif format but the M6 ones are not. Thought that was a bit odd. 😕
